Problem Based Learning

20160920_120654Problem Based Learning and Examples of Science Lesson Ideas

Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is an instructional method of hands-on, active learning centered on the investigation and resolution of messy, real-world problems.  It originated in the late 1960s at the medical school at McMaster University in Canada.  It is a pedagogical approach and curriculum design methodology often used in higher education and K-12 settings.  The following are some of the defining characteristics of PBL:

  • Learning is driven by challenging, open-ended problems with no one “right” answer
  • Problems/cases are context specific
  • Students work as self-directed, active investigators and problem-solvers in small collaborative groups (typically of about five students)
  • A key problem is identified and a solution is agreed upon and implemented
  • Teachers adopt the role as facilitators of learning, guiding the learning process and promoting an environment of inquiry

The following links are from Best Kids Educational Website Reviews of the best K-12 interactive games and education sites for kids, parents and teachers.  Education websites reviewed here are listed on LearningReviews.com, a directory of more than 2,900 mostly free K-12 educational websites, rated and reviewed by teachers, parents and students.  The projects are often cross-curricular and incorporate STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.
